Does anyone know if there is construction and/or painting going on at pbh??? I like room near villa pool elevator and lounge. I thought I saw something about blocked views. Less than 2 months. I heard it was 114 degrees with heatindex today. I remember doing Disney in 2011 with same temperature...bru.tal. can't wait to jump in villa pool!

i know i read a thread today that mentioned construction at pbh.
i think it was in the trip forums on the darkside.

the lady talked about construction going on.
it was on a sour note.

check in that forum for the construction that happened this month, or maybe it was june.

and another post i read today a family came back to pbh and couldn't enter their room.
the hotel checked them out.
they had a ressie which covered another night there.

Well good morning folks!!

I officially have TWO MONTHS until I leave on a jet plane. It won't be for almost a whole week until I hit the parks, but being in FL is fine by me. Going to Sanibel to rest on the beach before I do any parks.

Good wishes for DS .......in the chair for a couple of hours wouldn`t fancy that. Hope it goes well for him.

Janet.....wow that`s hot!!!! Very hot


Been busy last couple of days putting some decking in the garden......it was not easy in the heat wave we are enjoying over here. Well when I say "we"....it was technically DH and his friend, DS and me kind of supervising from the shade of the gazebo

I did bring them a constant supply of cold drinks, ice lollies and suncream.......I was invaluable really

It looks lovely though, very pleased with it.

Also got our ROF tickets for HHN.....planning on going 20th, 21st, 26th maybe 27th. Won`t be going 28th as that is our last full night and we usually spend that in Margaritaville......tradition. But we`ll see.

Todd......Louie`s before????? Kyle said it`s a tradition to go there with you now

Hope everyone`s doing good

So Janet...we can finally do dinner this year!

I'll be hanging with Raven some nights too and any new friends we meet along the way.
it's been years mac will be there too. we'll be at finnegans @ 4:30 pm, planning on hanging until they release the hounds.

mac I get u. Not sure which thread ur referencing, but we've run into construction primarily as to the exterior stucco replacement and the subsequent Trompe L'Oeil application the last two trips. IMO it really is a work of art. I always am floored by those who derisively term it 'fake', but likely the reason it's taking so long and requiring extensive scaffolding to ensure the safety of the artisans.

We had our windows taped over last October in a bay view suite and the compressors were noisy early in the am, i'll term it a wake up call of sorts. They progressed onto the section of the resort that faces the long length of the quiet pool during our June visit and were doing some work on the tall building area there (furthermost end away from main pool). The front of the resort was also heavily under work at that time.

I'd term it a necessary inconvenience. If it was a trip of a lifetime, perhaps i'd feel differently about it but you learn not to sweat the small stuff you can't control when traveling or it can fester and ruin the whole trip. I do think resorts should advise guests on their website if a property is under construction and send emails to those who have already booked as a courtesy. I didn't receive any on either trip, not sure if others have or not.

Sounds like a winner to me. I can stay for HHN but isn't that the night you guys usually do the RIP Tour or is it another night?

i found thread; its the "if youre staying at hr,rp or pbh start here". she said they were doing a lot of the exteriors. when we were there in nov., they were painting the bay side. if I remember correctly, they had closed west wing off because they were revamping the rooms. I always stay in villa wing over looking villa pool and if they are doing that, I may have to rethink. im going to call hotel directly to find out and if they are, I will just ask for west wing instead. I have it on my youfirst preference as villa wing, so will just change that closer to when we go. even a bad room at pbh is nicer than any other hotel. on second thought, im pretty sure I don't want to stay in east wing cuz its the pet wing. macraven, I hope you're son is feeling okay. there is really nothing fun about sitting in dentist office for 2 hours. nothing.

yes, that must be the thread ........i think.....

son is hanging in there.
he broke a back molar and doing a root canal.
well, he has two teeth that are being crowned and today we found he needs a wisdom tooth pulled.


he's still asleep and thinking of what to fix for him to eat later tonight.
all i can think of is fried egg sandwich
and a beer.


we have had some heat this week which is out of the ordinary.
being close to the lake, we don't usually hit the 90's.

i will take hot weather any day over cold weather.
no complaints from me on this week.

i bought my hhn tixs this morning.
one less thing on my list to do.

see my previous post, by 'quiet' pool I was referencing the villa one, not the hillside. Please post back as to what they say when u call.

mac ow for ur son, beer might just be the best medicine right now for him.

Boy that's a lot of work in one day for teeth and to top it off with a future wisdom tooth pull.

We have been have tons of rain down here. Today was the first day with no rain in quite a while. But it was still cloudy and humid.

We bought our tickets for HHN yesterday so we are all set too.

So I had a good news bad news thing today. So last week, after I knew my stepmom was gonna send me money to help with my phone, I went to ACE and got a pay day loan so I could get the phone before the check came, since I needed my phone, with the intention of paying off today when I got paid. Well, since they set it up for 2 weeks and I paid it off early, they waived the fees so I only paid back the original $500 that I owed, giving me an extra $150 for me! But then my electric bill was in the mail. It has never gone over $40 since I've been in this apt (I moved in in Oct?). Well, this month it's almost $90!! Oh well, will try to turn the air down more when I leave for work.

But, also on the bright side, my stepmom sent me $350 instead of the $300 I asked for, so that's what I used for my Bernadette Peters ticket. And I still had some exta left over from the $150 to get my HHN EP, and buy the new Evil Dead on Blu-Ray (cause nothing is more fun than hi-def gore!)
